Our whitefish dinner was very good. We enjoyed our table near the window overlooking the harbor. Wait staff were attentive. The dining area was attractive right off the lobby. There are many fine restaurants in the area and you will not be disappointed.

This jewel is a great weekend get-away during the off season. The rooms are clean, the food is great and the staff are wonderful. You won't have any crowds to fight between November and April!! It was quiet and peaceful with a lovely view of Lake Superior. We will go back as often as we can.

Went to Bayfield, WI on the shores of beautiful Lake Superior September 26 for 3 nights. Stayed across the street from The Bayfield Inn at one of their properties, The Isaac Wing. Phoenix Suite. Very fine accommodation. The Inn was filled by a tour group. Carol at the front desk handled our situation well and we appreciated that. Must take...

4 nights here - definitely met my expectations. You pay more for a room with a lake view - but it is worth it. Really pretty, especially in the fall. The BED is SO AMAZING. Super comfortable. Slept so well. Bathrooms could use more lighting though, almost weirdly dark Very good internet

All in all a good Inn in Bayfield the night before we hit the ferry to Madeline Island. Given that this was late in the season, the price was a wee bit high and especially as I was not given a waterside room but one looking over the parking lot. I though the non-waterside rooms should be less expensive than...

Can't beat the location. Get a room with water view, it's beautiful. We loved Bayfield and the people there. The hotel staff was great,very polite and accommodating. Loved the memorial park! They own several properties in the vicinity and they all look beautiful. All in all we had a wonderful time there in Bayfield. Would definitely recommend the Bayfield Inn.

The room was okay. Nothing to write home about, but not terrible. Had some minor issues, but that's probably because it's on the cheaper end of their lodging. Pros: Price, everything is walking distance. It was clean and everything worked. The staff was very friendly. Cons: Some spiders on the outside of our door (I was with two women who...

We loved Bayfield, a quaint, charming little town in upper Wisconsin. The Bayfield Inn is located right above marina and the tour boats for the Apostle Islands and next to the dock for the ferry to Madeline Island. Our room was on the first floor overlooking a little park above the marina and an excellent view of the lake. Out...

Great location, very accommodating staff. We got there way before check-in time. While our room wasn't ready, they took my cell phone number and called as soon as it was ready. We got in early afternoon just in time to get ready for a kayak excursion. Room was updated, clean and pleasant. The rooftop bar looked right out to the...

The Inn is located right on the lake. Lakeside rooms have a great view. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Right in the center of Bayfield, so shopping and dining are easy. The town is easy to get around in, lots of nice shops.
